Books of the Month: July 2013

Each month, I like to tell you about my favorite books I read that month.  This month, I loved several books (I read so many good ones that I could not narrow it down to just one).  Click the book titles to go to their respective Goodreads pages.

Lies You Wanted to Hear by James Whitfield Thomson
Publication: November 5, 2013
This book was simply outstanding!  I'm still thinking of it, weeks later.  I'll post my review closer to the release date.

Summary for Lies You Wanted to Hear:
A deeply moving, beautifully-written picture of how the smallest crack in a relationship slowly, over decades, becomes a canyon too wide to bridge.
When Lucy meets Matt on a blind date, Matt is instantly hooked; he sees Lucy as the fun, sexy, and wickedly smart girl of his dreams. Although she’s still getting over an old lover, Lucy is won over by Matt’s sweet, thoughtful nature. But 20 years later, alone in an empty house trying to imagine the lives of her two young children, Lucy comes to realize that the little lies you tell can create more damage than the truth you’re hiding.

Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi
Destroy Me (Shatter Me #1.5 by Tahereh Mafi
Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi

I'm late to the party on this series, and can't believe I've missed out on such a great series until now.  I loved every minute of these books and can't wait to see where Mafi takes the story next!
